SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2013–0262, dated October 30, 2013 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: Cracks were found on two Falcon 10 aeroplanes on the inboard end plate (rib) of the Right Hand (RH) inboard flap. On both aeroplanes the crack had initiated in the same area of the rib. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to complete fracture of the rib and loss of integrity of the flap structure. To address this potential unsafe condition, Dassault Aviation published Service Bulletin (SB) F10–318, which provides instructions for inspection of the affected area. For reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires a one-time [detailed] inspection of the RH and Left Hand (LH) inboard flaps and, depending on findings, replacement of the cracked part. You may examine the MCAI on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating it in Docket No. FAA–2013–0979. Relevant Service Information Dassault Aviation has issued Mandatory Service Bulletin F10–318, dated October 30, 2013. The actions described in this service information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This AD This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design.

Subtitle I, section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. ‘‘Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs,’’ describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in ‘‘Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES Regulatory Findings 14:40 Dec 06, 2013 List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety.

The following presents the comments received on the proposal and the FAA’s response to each comment. Further Support for the AD Scott Lewis suggested that the number of cracks reported may not be accurate. The commenter stated that his fleet had 53 cracks, which is a much higher percentage of airplanes cracked than the 56 cracks reported in the 140 airplanes that Beechcraft reported to the FAA. The commenter proposed no changes to the AD. We agree that the percentage of cracks reported may be low. This further justifies the need for the AD action and therefore, no changes to the final rule are necessary. Costs of Compliance Too Low Scott Lewis stated the costs supplied by Beechcraft are too low and that the actual costs are running $5,983 per side for the spar cap angles plus $9,212 for engineer support for a total of $15,195. This is compared to the $3,150 cited in the NPRM. This does not include the cost of the hat section if it requires repair. E:\FR\FM\09DER1.SGM 09DER1

Airworthiness Directives; DASSAULT AVIATION Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all 
DASSAULT AVIATION Model Falcon 10 airplanes. This AD requires a one-
time inspection for cracking of the right-hand (RH) and left-hand (LH) 
inboard flaps, and replacement if necessary. This AD was prompted by 
reports of cracking found on the inboard end plate (rib) of the RH 
inboard flap. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct such 
cracking, which could lead to complete fracture of the rib and loss of 
integrity of the flap structure, resulting in loss of control of the 
airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective December 24, 2013.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of December 24,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive 2013-0262, dated October 30, 2013 (referred to 
after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or 
``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified 
products. The MCAI states:

    Cracks were found on two Falcon 10 aeroplanes on the inboard end 
plate (rib) of the Right Hand (RH) inboard flap. On both aeroplanes 
the crack had initiated in the same area of the rib.
    This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to 
complete fracture of the rib and loss of integrity of the flap 
structure.
    To address this potential unsafe condition, Dassault Aviation 
published Service Bulletin (SB) F10-318, which provides instructions 
for inspection of the affected area.
    For reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires a one-time 
[detailed] inspection of the RH and Left Hand (LH) inboard flaps 
and, depending on findings, replacement of the cracked part.

    You may examine the MCAI on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating it in Docket No. FAA-
2013-0979.

Relevant Service Information

    Dassault Aviation has issued Mandatory Service Bulletin F10-318, 
dated October 30, 2013. The actions described in this service 
information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in 
the MCAI.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This AD

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another 
country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant 
to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have 
been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service 
information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we 
evaluated all pertinent information and determined the unsafe condition 
exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same 
type design.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of 
this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies 
waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because 
cracking of the inboard end plate (rib) of the inboard flap could lead 
to complete fracture of the rib and loss of integrity of the flap 
structure, resulting in loss of control of the airplane. Therefore, we 
determined that notice and opportunity for public comment before 
issuing this AD are impracticable and that good cause exists for making 
this amendment effective in fewer than 30 days.

[[Page 73688]]

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and we did not precede it by notice and opportunity for public 
comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under 
the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2013-0979; Directorate 
Identifier 2013-NM-223-AD'' at the beginning of your comments. We 
specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, 
environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all 
comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD because of 
those comments.
    We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We 
will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we 
receive about this AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 81 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to 
issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the 
authority of the FAA Administrator. ``Subtitle VII: Aviation 
Programs,'' describes in more detail the scope of the Agency's 
authority.
    We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in 
``Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General 
requirements.'' Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with 
promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing 
regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator 
finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within 
the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition 
that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this 
rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

    We determined that this AD will not have federalism implications 
under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct 
effect on the States, on the relationship between the national 
government and the States, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among the various levels of government.
    For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD:
    1. Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order 
12866;
    2. Is not a ``significant rule'' under the DOT Regulatory Policies 
and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979);
    3. Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska; and
    4. Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or 
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness 
directive (AD):

2013-25-01 DASSAULT AVIATION: Amendment 39-17697. Docket No. FAA-
2013-0979; Directorate Identifier 2013-NM-223-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD becomes effective December 24, 2013.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to DASSAULT AVIATION Model Falcon 10 airplanes, 
certificated in any category, all serial numbers.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 27, Flight 
controls.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by reports of cracking found on the inboard 
end plate (rib) of the right-hand inboard flap. We are issuing this 
AD to detect and correct such cracking, which could lead to complete 
fracture of the rib and loss of integrity of the flap structure, 
resulting in loss of control of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.

(g) Inspection and Replacement

    Within 65 days after the effective date of this AD, do a 
detailed inspection for cracking of ribs 1 and 3 of the left- and 
right-hand inboard flaps, in accordance with the Accomplishment 
Instructions of Dassault Mandatory Service Bulletin F10-318, dated 
October 30, 2013. If any cracking is found, before further flight, 
replace the inboard flap with a crack-free serviceable flap, in 
accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Dassault 
Mandatory Service Bulletin F10-318, dated October 30, 2013.
